Description Mark Hull-Richter 2013-02-02 18:54:35 UTC
When I open an encrypted file in any given workspace, if I have any other LO file open in a different workspace, LO jumps to that workspace, even if the open file is minimized, and prompts for the password there.  It does not switch back to the workspace where the file is actually opened.

To reproduce:

1. Open any LO file (say in workspace #1).
2. Go to another workspace (say #2).
3. Open an encrypted LO file.  This typically occurs if done from a shell command line (e.g., xdg-open or gnome-open). It does NOT happen from within a file manager.

LO will jump back to workspace 1 to prompt for the second file's password, then NOT jump back to workspace 2.

Expected behavior:

Preferably do not jump to another workspace at all.

If not, jump back when the password is entered.
